Creating the Modern Farmhouse Style
Modern Farmhouse is a style that combines a mix of modern and industrial elements to create a streamlined, sophisticated, yet comfortable look. This style has become extremely popular, incorporating the new and the old in a more refined and minimalistic way.
The basic Modern Farmhouse design starts with a crisp, neutral color palette consisting of light and dark finishes, adding in natural, rustic wood for texture. For cabinetry, door styles typically have a flat center panel and clean, simple lines.
As a nod to the farmhouse reference, adding in industrial inspired elements such as lighting, exposed beams or seating provides visual interest along with functionality. Including a large farm table mimics an eat in kitchen, a throwback to the traditional farmhouses of the past. Mixing up the seating with a combination of chairs and benches brings a curated look to the space.
Wide plank hardwood flooring and shiplap on the walls and ceiling are other design elements that are very appropriate for a Modern Farmhouse. Adding dramatic, exposed beams brings in the industrial feel.
Sliding barn doors are an obvious choice, but not only for the style itself. They are a great solution when there isn’t room for a hinged door or pocket door. Incorporating the X-motif either in the barn door or as an end cap on an island also brings another simple, yet classic farmhouse element.
Whether it’s a kitchen, or an entire house, the Modern Farmhouse style is quickly becoming a classic.
